Testimony from IRS whistleblowers, one of whom will reveal himself for the first time on Wednesday, will detail the “corrosion of ethical standards and the abuse of power that threaten” the United States, according to written testimony obtained by the Washington Examiner.

The whistleblowers have come forward alleging politicization in the investigation into Hunter Biden and his family. Both the unnamed IRS agent, referred to as “Whistleblower X,” and veteran IRS Supervisory Special Agent Gary Shapley will appear at the public hearing, according to House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY).

In addition to alleging political obstruction by the Justice Department in the Biden family investigation, both whistleblowers claimed they were retaliated against for raising such concerns. Comer said he does not expect new information to be uncovered on Wednesday but that he wants to “see what the IRS whistleblowers think” regarding information his committee has uncovered.

Whistleblower X, who identifies as a Democrat, will say his testimony is not meant as “an attack on any specific individual or political party,” but rather, that he aims to “address systemic problems that have allowed misconduct to flourish
